What is bullying and why do bullies bully?
Aggressive or dominating behavior is often displayed by teenagers and can continue over a lifetime in abusive relationships. Such a primitive psychological defense mechanism finds roots in an attempt to control disturbing feelings.
Many times a bully is seeking power, especially if they did not receive a sense of security or empowerment at home. When parents or caregivers attempt control children by creating fear or shame, perhaps the smaller, more scared children or those with deeper emotional insecurities become victims, while others will hide behind their discomforts by showing abusing behaviors and exploiting other kids’ insecurities.
Join Dr. Sadigh and his special guest Sandra Dupont, LMFT to find out how the bully and the bullied respond in relationship with self and others. Learn what needs must be met in order to prevent bullying. Sandra specializes in supporting teens and their parents in understanding and addressing the issues teens face today.

As a Christian Counselor I open my show with a brief reading from the 'book of wisdom' (Proverbs), and then I speak to the question from a faith and practical perspective. I close in prayer.

Kids often don’t tell adults they’re bullied so you may have to voice your concerns. Review the signs of bullying and then ask direct questions.
“You’re always hungry: have you been eating your lunch?”
“Your CDs are missing? Did someone take them?”
“Your jacket is ripped. Did someone do that to you?”
Watch your child’s reactions. Often what a child doesn’t say may be more telling. Tune into your child’s body language. Silence is often powerful.
